The trailer for '7500' looks really stupid. Somewhere on Flight '7500' an unwanted monstrous passenger lurks on the plane. Seriously? 'Snakes on a Plane' was one thing. That was a campy spoof, but a serious creature feature on a plane? I'm not saying that horror films in tight quarters can't work. Take the film 'Devil' for example, which was set in the confines of an elevator. That filmed worked and it worked well. Likewise, both 'The X-Files' and 'Supernatural' had episodes of supernatural creatures on a plane. But something in '7500' isn't clicking.
'The Grudge' director Takashi Shimizu returns to the director's chair, which may or may not be a good thing. The American version of 'The Grudge' was ok, not great. 'The Grudge 2' was especially bad. The screenwriter is Craig Rosenberg, who previously wrote the cheap thrill, 'The Uninvited.' So things are not looking good.
Lastly the release date has been pushed from August 2012 to 2013. If I were a betting person, I'd say this one will be released in January, which may as well be the kiss of death.
